    In September, our monthly theme is MONEY.

    We might want to look into currencies around the world, current or past. Maybe we will learn something too. In addition to currencies, maybe we can find words related to saving money, finance, and the like. So, what can we identify as words related to money, that will start with each letter of the alphabet?

    Let’s go!

    Because I want more people to jump in the game, I will ask to NOT post two consecutive answers (unless there is a 24-hour period without an answer since it could mean we are stuck)
